Nixon nukes chicken in Anaheim

I've posted about Don Nixon's restaurants here before, but I thought this 1957 clipping from Popular Science Magazine was interesting enough to share. I'm particularly surprised to learn that the Vice President's brother could fry a chicken in a microwave oven in 30 seconds. They must have had very different microwaves back then.
